One of the cool little unsung features of CFEclipse are dictionaries. Dictionaries are those little files that provide all the code hinting and insight for your CF tags, functions and scopes as you type. Daemonite Blair has been investigating clever ways to build dictionaries for FarCry Core and keep them automatically up to date.
Eclipse has never been a fast starter. If you are using Pulse to manage your Eclipse installation you may be annoyed by the Pulse Launcher always asking for your choice of profile -- it certainly makes the whole start-up process unnecessarily painful. But you can nominate to start your profile directly and here is how.
Pulse is a nifty service that allows you to install and maintain an Eclipse development environment. Adding additional plugins is as easy as picking from a catalogue. But what if you want to install plugins that aren't on the official list? Well it turns out you can manually install these for each profile on your system.

What follows is a little crib sheet for merging. Just happens to be using Subclipse for Eclipse but the same steps apply for any Subversion client.
